What is proof printing?
Print shops print in huge volumes, with print runs ranging from many thousands to many millions of prints, so mistakes are not an option. For this reason test prints are taken to check and correct color to ensure that they are accurate before production printing takes place. These test prints are called “proofs.” A contract proof usually serves as an agreement between customer and printer and as a color reference guide for adjusting the press before the final press run.
Newsprint proofing is the most cost-effective way of obtaining a visual copy of a press release, article or an advertisement, without the expense of creating an actual press proof.
Press time is the most expensive part of print media. The main objective of proofing is to produce a hard copy of what the final product will look like on press though it also helps the press man getting a reference.

Packaging Proofing & White Ink Proofing
White plays a vital role in printing on transparent films, such as those used for labels on plastic bottles and bags for snack foods. A layer of white ink has to be laid down first on these films before other colors are added so that background colors are not visible and so that the printed colors look good. Epson entered the package printing industry and made a big splash by developing a ground-breaking product: a water-based white ink that can conveniently and inexpensively be used for printing proofs on transparent films.
